------------------
i know clnmike, i feel the same way. out of all the politicians that are sick or have died, when i read this the other day, i felt a heaviness...a lost...

brain tumor+operation+70-something years old...hummm i pray the operation is a success, but it would not suprise me if he retires from everything and enjoys the rest of the days he has been given.

yes, it is the end of an era as marcia said.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I saw on your bio that your favorite book is the Autobiography of Malcolm X - I had the privilege of having dinner with Attilah Shabazz in Madrid once. She invited us to sit down with her and we were an hour into dinner before we figured out who she was. She was amazing, so gracious and sweet and funny. She told us to order some chicken on the menu that was so good and she said that her daddy used to say food like that would make your leg jiggle like a dog having his tummy rubbed. So whenever I think of something delicious I imagine Malcolm X saying "That's so good, it makes your leg shake." Reminds me that after all, he was just a normal, silly dad with his kids - like most men are.

Anyway, just felt like sharing that with you. Happy Wordless Wednesday!

Mariposa said...

I'm always amazed on how socially involved you are in your post! Happy WW!

twilightandreason said...

One of the most consistent voices on the left.

Do not let it be silenced, not like this.

Praying for remission...

Praying for the senator.

Villager said...

All - Thanks for your support of this Wordless Wednesday meme. I understand that Senator Kennedy's tumor is inoperable. That is not a good sign. For now, we keep him and his family in our prayers.

Missy - That is a remarkable story. Thank you very much for sharing it with us. At the end of the day ... we are all human. Malcolm X was no exception...

Maya said...

I'm also not in political figures.
Happy WW.

Marsha said...

As others have said, we are certainly nearing the end of a political dynasty. I think the entire nation is in prayer for him and the family, regardless of political affiliation. He is an icon!

I hope you'll get a chance to stop by and check out my WW contribution for today!

Just Some Thoughts

Gattina said...

He must have changed a lot since 1971 ! when he was involved in so many scandals, lol ! We haven't heard very much ever since in Europe about him. I remember when he stayed with his wife Joan in the Brussels Hilton and the waiters had all the troubles of the world with them because they were completely drunken every night ! He even bumped into a window and cut his forehead !

the teach said...

Yes, Villager, I hope he can beat this!

Nai said...

hope he gets well..

hope you can also check out our WW posts here and here. Happy WW! :)

A great man from a great family!

Sen. Kennedy's "passing of the torch" to the Man he feels is most suited to be the next President of the United States, Barack Obama (a man of mixed heritage), will go down in My history book along the greatest of other selfless acts of the "Liberal Lion" on behalf of the American people!

It's just so sad. What a nice post. He's in my thoughts, and I hope he manages to come through this. I love the last shot of him with Obama.

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

I wish Senator Kennedy a speedy recovery. Like him or not, he has made an indelible mark on the political landscape in America through his tireless dedication and hardwork.

Villager said...

Gattina - All of us change between our early 20s and our golden years. Ted Kennedy is no different. I don't know about his drinking and such ... but, he is currently thought to be the best United States Senator in the past 50 years ... and perhaps in the top five all-time for all US Senators that we've had in the 200+ years of our nation's existance.

Yes...he evolved and changed. I imagine that having your two brothers assassinated would have that impact on any of us...

Villager said...

Truthiz - I imagine that many of the uncommitted superdelegates have it in their mind that Ted Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama, and perhaps they should do so too...

Villager said...

Torrance - Done!

Danielle said...

I wish Sen. Kennedy all the best. My prayers go out to him and his family.

Regina said...

He and his family are definitely in my prayers.

S2 said...

This is a lovely tribute. He's such an accomplished man.

island wench said...

This made the news in Seychelles as well. I wish him well.

Bunny Trails said...

Nice tribute. May he be well soon.

Thanks for dropping by. :D

Gabriel said...

It's interesting how many Kennedys are in my life. The university I studied at in Buenos Aires is called "John F. Kennedy".

At work, I'm currently working with MassGen, the hospital in which Ted Kennedy was staying these days. Even my boss' last name is Kennedy! :-)

Thanks for dropping by, hope you had a great WW!

Villager said...

Gabriel - Wow ... those are some very strange coincidences with the Kennedy name, family and legacy. Thank you very much for sharing your village voice with us...
